18 And whoso forbiddeth to abstain from meats,  that man should not eat the same, is not ordained  of God;
19 For behold the beasts of the field, and the fowls  of the air, and that which cometh of the earth, is  ordained for the use of man, for food, and for rai ment, and that he might have in abundance, but it  is not given that one man should possess that which  is above another:
20 Wherefore the world lieth in sin; and wo be  unto man that sheddeth blood or that wasteth flesh  and hath no need.
21 And again, verily I say unto you, that the Son  of man cometh not in the form of a woman, neither  of a man travelling on the earth:
22 Wherefore be not deceived, but continue in  steadfastness, looking forth for the heavens to be  shaken:
23 And the earth to tremble, and to reel to and  fro as a drunken man; and for the valleys to be ex alted; and for the mountains to be made low; and  for the rough places to become smooth:
24 And all this when the angel shall sound his  trumpet.
25 But before the great day of the Lord shall come,  Jacob shall flourish in the wilderness; and the La manites shall blossom as the rose:
26 Zion shall flourish upon the hills, and rejoice  upon the mountains, and shall be assembled togeth er unto the place which I have appointed.
27 Behold I say unto you, go forth as I have com manded you:
28 Repent of all your sins; ask and ye shall re ceive; knock and it shall be opened unto you:
29 Behold I will go before you, and be your rere [p. 118]
